Grab your cardboard, parcel tape, and model building skills: Halloween masks are no longer just for witches and warlocks, but for architects too. A furniture designer turned mask creator based in the United Kingdom has created a series of geometric masks for the creatively inclined, available as a template online. A great way to use up leftover model-making materials, the masks were designed "to create a set of masks that could be built by anyone using local materials removing the need for mass manufacturing or shipping and with the minimum environmental impact," says their creator Steve Wintercroft.

Once purchased, PDF-formatted instructions and plans can be downloaded, printed and assembled with a bit of patience and a lot of creativity. The range of masks includes a pumpkin, skull, wolf, owl, chihuahua, bear, and many more. For a mere £4.50 ($7.25 USD), you can download your own Wintercroft mask online here.
